The whole world is in a frenzy because of the Ebola virus, as scientists are working to produce a vaccine, while others are looking for opportunities to make money from him. A domain name marketer sold Ebola.com to a medical hemp company.

The company Blue String Ventures, which owns approximately 5.000 domains, including Ebola.com, received an offer to sell the domain in exchange for $ 50,000 (40.000 €) in cash and 19.192 shares of Cannabis sativa Inc, a subsidiary of the Weed Growth Fund, a company that promotes medical use of cannabis.

The shares of Cannabis sativa Inc. alone are worth close to $ 170.000 (134.000 €). Considering that 13,500's 10,600 2008 200.000 157.000 XNUMX costs XNUMX, Blue String Ventures made a profit of XNUMX USD (XNUMX €) from this sale.

The deal is not the most lucrative of this company, a spokesman for Blue String Ventures said in Huffington Post, compared to others it has signed, such as LasVegasRealEstate.com and PaydayLoans.com.

«Οι άνθρωποι δεν καταλαβαίνουν τι κάνουμε. Εμείς δεν αγοράζουμε domains ελπίζοντας να υπάρξει μια καταστροφή» δήλωσε ο Chris Hood, μέτοχος της εταιρείας.

Of course, Birdflu.com also belongs to the company, which together with Ebola is two diseases that have frightened the world.

Currently, the site is already hosting information about the Ebola virus.
